Being a stock Android device, Google Nexus 5 from 2013 is still going strong. In the meantime, the search giant is busy working on the Nexus 2016 models.
It goes without saying that sellers will be looking to clear the old Nexus stocks to make way for the new Nexus 2016 models, earmarked to be launched sometime towards the end of this year.
EBay has listed the LG-made Nexus 5 smartphone, tied to the model number “D820,” at a discounted price of $150. This device debuted at $399.99. Interested buyers should note that the brand new GSM factory unlocked Nexus 5 is available only in limited quantities.
So far, 729 units of this handset have been sold via eBay. However, the 32GB variant is out of stock now, but the 16GB model is available for purchase. The seller “Cell World” has a whopping 98.6 percent approval rating on eBay.
For those planning to purchase this device, here is a quick summary of key Nexus 5 specifications. This smartphone comes with a pocket-friendly 4.95-inch True HD IPS+ display, complemented by 1,080 x 1,920 pixels resolution and Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 panel protection.
Under the hood, it is powered by a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 800) processor, which is backed by 2GB of RAM. On the software end, Android 5.0 runs the handset out of the box. But then, it is still upgradable to the latest Android 6.0.
Camera-wise, the LG Nexus 5 sports a cool 8-megapixel rear-facing shooter with LED flash and OIS support. There is also a modest 1.3-megapixel shooter at the front for selfies. Apart from the 16GB built-in storage, this handset does not support microSD card to facilitate expansion.
A modest, non-removable Li-Po 2,300 mAh battery cell backs the entire device. On paper, it is capable of offering up to 17 hours of 3G talk time and 300 hours of 3G stand-by time. Other key Nexus 5 features include support for 4G LTE, NFC and Wireless Charging.
